My Favorite Tree: Thailand Edition

My Favorite Tree: Thailand Edition

I like trees, maybe I like them more than most people do, and maybe I like them more that I should. They provide us with oxygen, a sustainable building material, known as wood, great beauty to admire and a perfect place to hang a hammock. What more can you ask for?

In each city and town that we have visited so far I have seemed to bump into a tree that I could easily call my favorite, here are a few of them from Thailand.

Favorite tree #1

This was my first favorite tree. Its ancient resilience jumped out at me while moseying through a park in Bangkok. I meditated with it for a while and I am pretty sure we are friends now.

 

The kind face of the bark was inviting and friendly

Its size caught my eye but the friendly face in the bark was what drew me to this tree.

 

Boonrawd Farm

Standing alone without a single leaf, this tree had a certain je ne sais quoi…which I learned the other day is a term that the French do not actually use.

 

This may be a stretch for a 'favorite tree' as it is not just one, but these trees were planted with a purpose and they seemed to be holding up well in the intense heat.

    I love the first image with the little light bokehs. It looks like the tree is growing hair

      It kinda was growing hairs. It took a long time for me to figure out how to capture them but I was happy with the perspective I found. It was a great tree to share some shade with because the sun in Bangkok that day was especially brutal.

    Vinny,
    I love trees too. I have a bunch of favorites around town. There was a beautiful willow in Somerville that I loved driving under. It has since been cut down. Love your pictures.

      Cindy,
      Maybe when I get back you can show my your favorite trees, or at least point me in their direction. Seeing a good tree, or any tree, get cut down is always a bummer, I hope they planted a new one in its place!
